Since when did “lies” and “the truth” become synonyms? Since the GOP came to town!

A few things have been bothering me with this week’s GOP convention in my home town of St. Paul, Minnesota… there were several speeches where I knew that the pundits were lying and I had to ask myself “Since when did it become acceptable to LIE to the American public on national television?”

Well, I wasn’t the only one who had issue with the statements… so were the Momocrats!

·         First – Mike Huckabee:  “And speaking of Governor Palin, I am so tired of hearing about her lack of experience. I want to tell you folks something. She got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States.”  Sarah Palin received more votes for major in Alaska than Biden got for President of the United States?  – False, Sarah got 909 from her town of 5,469 and Joe got 79,754 before dropping out after Iowa.

·         Second – Sarah Palin: “But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform – not even in the state senate.”  – False, Barack has sponsored (or co-sponsored) more than 823 bills while in the Illinois State Senate on health care, poverty, crime, civil rights, ethics, the environment, gun control, and immigration.

GOP Lobbyist Jack Abramoff Sentenced to 4 More Years – I’m betting on a pardon!

A federal judge on Thursday sentenced former GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff to four years in prison for his role in trading expensive gifts, meals and sports trips in exchange for political favors.  Abramoff will serve this sentence concurrently with his current jail sentence of defrauding of American Indian tribes and corruption of public officials.  After college Abramoff ran for College Republican National Chairman where he was quoted as saying “It is not our job to seek peaceful coexistence with the Left, our job is to remove them from power permanently.”  If you would like a refresher on all of the details make sure to check out the section… Overview_of_criminal_and_political_investigations.

Anyone want to place a bet on whether George Bush will pardon Abramoff before he leaves office in January?
